Can Your IPhone Grow Your Business Sales? Yes, Here’s How…
If you own a business, you know how hard it can be to promote growth, especially at the beginning. If you have an iPhone, you can employ it heavily as a business tool.
There are many apps available that can assist you with running your business and thus helping your business to grow. These apps can increase your efficiency and help you earn more profits in the process. The following is a list of 5 such iPhone apps.
1. Analytics App
If you own an online business, this app will show you how well you are making use of Google. Being visible online is the major way that your business can be noticed and gain new customers, so it is important that you are taking full advantage of the most popular search engine out there. This app will show you up to 55 reports that tell you how visible your site is and how many hits it is getting.
As long as your iPhone is with you, you can check these statistics at any time, no matter where you are. You can evaluate your site’s content and track the use of keywords. This can help you make necessary changes to increase your online presence.
2. Clock In
This app is very useful for keeping track of how you have been using your time. Any time at all that you are working, you can “clock in” on your iPhone. This is especially useful if the nature of your business necessitates that you work odd hours and have meetings outside of business hours. Being able to clock in on your phone will make it possible to keep track of your productivity.
For example, if you have clients who are paying you hourly, you can make a smart assessment of how much you should be charging for the amount of work that you are completing in an hour. Alternatively, you can use this tool to assess whether you are being as productive as you feel is possible. If not, you can examine your work practices and make them more efficient if necessary.
If the nature of your business is such that you often attend seminars and conventions and give frequent PowerPoint presentations, this app would be very useful for you. MbPointer enables you to use your iPhone as a remote control for your PowerPoint slideshow.
You can even start the presentation remotely if necessary. You can move from slide to slide with just a tilt of your iPhone, and add notes using the pen that comes with your device. This app is much more effective than the standard remote control that is used for this purpose, yet at $2.99, it is also much cheaper.
This app serves as a fantastic organizing tool. With Evernote, you can track a multitude of things simultaneously. You can organize and track appointment, assignments to be completed, and your own thoughts and ideas that may come into use later. You can also write notes and capture memos, as well as sync photos taken with your iPhone to your computer.
For any business owner who regularly has ideas in places where it is inconvenient to write them down, this app would benefit you greatly. Also, you can make notes without fear of losing them as you could lose a post-it. You can set up the system so that you can access all of your Evernote information on your computer as well. Evernote makes your iPhone a powerful business tool.
If you accept credit card payments, this app could be indispensible. Using uCharge, you could turn your iPhone into a credit card terminal. As long as you have Wi-Fi or 3G/4G, you can set up your phone so that this app can instantly accept or decline credit card charges for your customers.
These apps can all prove very useful for business owners. You would be doing yourself a favor if you looked through these apps and made use of the ones that would specifically benefit you.
